Products: D 1050 USB DAC
Great sound quality and i couldn't wish it'd be better, but i want to add to that that it actually can be remote controlled with my Logitech Harmony One Universal remote control. For this i had to install the remote control codes of the D7050 in my logitech Harmony. The RC codes of D1050 and D7050 are the same, only the D1050 has less functionalty. It's a shame though that the D1050 doesn't come with a remote control, while it apparentlt has a IR receiver. The only drawback is that my NAD C-165BEE remote control signal has overlaps with the D7050 remote signals. Input selectors can be directly selected with D7050 RC signal, but onfortunenately these functions also switch the input channels of my C-1565BEE pre-amp (while it should stay on for example CD). However, the 'InputNext' and 'InputPrevious' signals do not interfere with my C-165BEE, so it is possible to change input on the D1050 with a universal remote control. BTW, this also works vice versa: The D1050 changes input together with the SR8 remote control of my C-165BEE Pre-Amp. BTW, i did do a firmware update today before i started to figure this out.
